US employment rose by slightly more than economists had predicted during May.
The latest US non-farm payrolls show that 175,000 jobs were created last month. But the unemployment rate increased slightly to 7.6%.
Shares had mostly fallen in the run up to the figures, as investors worried that a strong report could lead the Fed to slow its bond-buying programme, as Samira Hussain reports.
